Crews are working through stiff winds and dry conditions to contain wildfires in seven Nebraska counties, including Cherry, Holt, Knox, Boone, Merrick, Nance and Fillmore. State officials say the latest fires have burned an additional 58,000 acres. That's the size of Lincoln. Most of the fires were contained or nearly contained Thursday afternoon, but the wind is complicating some of the firefighting efforts. These latest fires bring the total area burned this season to about 300,000 acres which is about as big as Los Angeles. The Nebraska Emergency Management Agency is asking farmers to curtail their haying and harvesting until the winds subside, to reduce the fire risk. But officials will not impose fines on those who choose to continue.
